Mission: The Loudoun Free Clinic is a private, non-profit, community-based organization that provides quality health care services at no cost to low-income, uninsured Loudoun residents. Since 2002 the Free Clinic has continuously provided medical care to our neighbors in need with emergency, acute and chronic medical conditions. Some of our patients were born into challenging circumstances while others never dreamed they would one day worry about access to food, shelter and basic healthcare. As a supporter of the Loudoun Free Clinic, be it as a donor, volunteer or community partner, your help goes beyond medical treatment. You offer dignity, compassion and a place where patients feel cared for. Our patients come to us under the most difficult of circumstances, when they are sick and struggling, and when they have lost their ability to provide their most basic healthcare needs. The Free Clinic offers expert medical care and something that cannot be measured - caring support and a community to which they can turn.

I became a volunteer a year and a half ago when I could no longer work because of my handicap. Volunteering gives me a positive purpose in my life. The volunteer coordinator created the perfect job for me based on my skills and interests. I enjoy helping solicit and collect supplies for the benefit of patients, staff and volunteers. I get to meet many kind and generous donors in Loudoun County from young Girl Scouts to middle & high schoolers, college kids, churches, clubs and businesses. Some volunteer work I can even do at my home computer. The clinic puts the FUN in fundraising events and those are awesome to volunteer for too!

The Loudoun Free Clinic is a great place to give back to the community by helping others. The staff and volunteers treat each person who walks in the clinic seeking medical assistance as friends and not just as patients, giving each individual expert help in a warm, friendly, caring environment.

This is an amazing place to be, the volunteers are so nice, they make everyone feel so warm and welcomed! The clients are a priviledge to work with, it's been so rewarding to see the progress that so many have made in improving their health.

I have volunteered throughout Loudoun County for over 12 years. The Loudoun Free Clinic has been the best and most rewarding experience. The staff and volunteers are the most loving, caring friendliest, and generous people I have ever met. Offering this type of service to the Loudoun County community is absolutely awesome. I am very grateful that I can commit time to the clinic to help and support others.

This is a wonderful place to work. The core staff is very professional and does a fantastic job providing quality care on a shoestring budget. They can do this because there have many licensed and non-licensed volunteers. LFC provides comprehensive medical care on an appointment basis. This is sometimes the only alternative for people who have chronic health issues that are not ER material. This service is much needed in this county (and country) and the Loudoun Free Clinic is an excellent example of how effective a free clinic can be.

It's wonderful to volunteer for a group where your help is visibly needed and appreciated. I have only been volunteering for the LFC for 4 months, but I can honestly say hands down that it has been the best organization I have ever volunteered for. Our group is so incredibly diverse, high school kids to volunteers in their 50s and everybody just fits in. Tasks are incredibly well coordinated as they draw from each volunteer's strengths so we all complement each other.

Being a nurse volunteer is special at the LFC. You feel your skills contribute to patients who most need them. And I'm particulary impressed with the support of the clinicians, staff and contributers who make the clinic possible. The LFC is a special place where needed services are provided to our community. It is a honor to be part of the LFC team!

I came into this volunteer position not sure how my previous experience would be utilized. This organization has a real knack of matching talents/skills with the various needs of the patients, staff and clinic. I have been in the healthcare world for many years and have never witnessed such a dedicated group of staff and volunteers----all they want is what is best for their patients and they will go to whatever lengths necessary to accomplish that goal. These may not be the easiest patients to work with (they have so many other daily challenges) but they are truly grateful for the care, support and love they receive. It keeps me coming back!

I joined the clinic in April, before the great move! The new place was definetely an improvement over the old one, but the service remained the same. I have seen people in important positions move to a different job, but the service didn't falter because there are always commieted individuals that step up to the challenge when it is required. There is always room for improvement and I am convinced that that is exactly the work ethic that predominates at the clinic. I believe I have found the right venue to give my best.

What surprises me about the Loudoun Free Clinic is that the people that volunteer there are always so upbeat and friendly. This in spite of being tight on staff and materials. The patients are also appreciative and they will dig in a donate a few dollars here and there when they can.
When you see how people are helped by the clinic it makes you realize that any one of us could find ourselves in bad straights if hit with a medical dilemma. I am glad to be a part of the group who is trying to provide the safety net for those in dire need of a helping hand. No one should have to go without medical care when the means to a healthier life is available.
We also have doctors, dietitians, and other health care providers who service the specialty needs of our patients including an emphasis on health and wellness particularly with our "Meet Your Numbers" program for diabetics.

I work at the Loudoun Free Clinic every week. They are a tremendous organization, working to improve the health of the poorest of the poor in Loudoun County. The medical team is unbelievably committed to excellence in patient care, and they work tirelessly to educate our patients on lifestyle improvements that can make huge differences in the patients' lives and the lives of their families. The warmth and compassion of the entire team is an inspiration to me!

I LOVE volunteering at the Loudoun Free Clinic. I love working with this team of generous, compassionate individuals, many of them volunteers too, serving a large population of low-income, uninsured individuals (over 1,200 patients in 2012). Most of all, I love working with the patients. As a volunteer interpreter, I get to meet them and hear a bit of their stories. It's a humbling, deeply touching, and rewarding experience. As a side personal benefit, I get to learn about medicine!
